2012 Resolutions

Resolutions? What the heck are resolutions?

Read more books?

Cook more?

Sleep more than 4 hours a night in a few months?

Have a clean house?

Meh... Resolutions...

Quite frankly, I gave up on those a heck of a long time ago. Sort of. I vowed to quit smoking one year. That didn't happen. I vowed to exercise three times per week another year. That went out the window. Then I vowed to eat better. I guess I did join a CSA (about 4 years later...).

Somehow I've always wanted to read 75 - 100 books in a year. Will that happen?


:::gasp for air:::::


I think it would happen if I read about 5 children's books a week. (Do they have to be different books or can they be the same?)

And now you've just met the pessimistic person in me. Oh, wait, no - maybe I'm a realist instead? I know that if I set goals too high for myself I just ignore them and think, well, WTF, why did I do that in the first place when I know I'm not going to do anything about them?

So here's my post on New Year's Resolutions.

I'm not doing any.

So there. Take that 2012. I'm just going to live life and enjoy it.

Crap, did I just make a resolution?

Even if it is a resolution it is a great one! Happy New Year!

That sounds like a great plan to me!

And I'm in the same boat with loving the idea of reading so many books, but knowing there's no way. Even if I went the children's book route, I'd probably read 15 in one sitting for 5 days in a row, and then end up calling it quits for the year anyway, ha.

Then again, I spend a ton of time reading stuff online....lots of blogs, articles, news, whatever. So really, I do spend a lot of time reading...just not in the same way.
